Johnny Griffin's first recording under his own name was released in 1956 and four years later he was together with Eddie 'Lockjaw' Davis in a rather successful and popular band. In this respect the concert in Hamburg 15 years later was also a sort of revival. When Davis starts off the second part of the NDR-recording with the master-standard "I Can't Started," followed by "Stompin' At The Savoy" with he and Griffin alternating, then it becomes clear what these two musicians appreciated in each other: the partnership in the creative rivalry and cooperation of their voices.

Pleasantly and with a lot of air Davis filled the room with sound, crisp and robust was Griffin's reaction. Together they were almost unbeatable. Furthermore, the Onkel Pö-concert was a typical Griffin-evening. 'Little Giant' (as the community called him) was never really interested in a clear structure - the pure energy of exuberant storytelling was his element. With one small motive (e.g."Funky Fluke" towards the finale) he could easily fill one side of an LP; he always had something more to tell. This was in a way the motto of these seemingly never-ending story: always give more, always find more.
